Exclamation New car, what can i do?

Hello, I am new to this site but would like some of your guys/girls bad ass ideas, some do's and don'ts. So far, on my 2007 FoFo zx3 se hatch black, I have installed an AEM short ram, and a complete Apexi aftercat exhaust. I also have little stuff like a momo shifter and svt pedals, color coded seat covers and all the performance names Ive used so far as decals. I have purchased a tachometer because for some reason the car only has a shift light but I have not yet been able to install it.

I was considering a lowering spring kit probably Eibach brand after I see about getting some new wheels and tires.

Help me out please :)

You're better off getting the gauge cluster with the tach. ebay or focussalvage should be able to help. I'd steer away from having decals for performance names on my car, or color coded seat covers, but that's just me. I like the slick look. As for new wheels - tirerack has SVT wheels (your ford dealer should be able to get them for you as well through Ford racing) for $125 a piece plus the cost of tires. IMHO - the argent SVT euro wheels look the best on a black focus. Lower it, add the argent SVT wheels, and you've got something slick. Maybe, down the road, get the rear suspension off of an 07 focus ST - and pop that on (get rear discs - assuming you have the safety package on your 07 - mine does and I'm planning on doing this when the warranty is up and a wrecked 07 focus st can easily be found at the local salvage yard).
